There Will Be No World’s Best Restaurant This Year

Even with the votes tallied, World’s 50 Best postpones its 2020 rankings. “It doesn’t seem the right time, when the hospitality industry is suffering.”

On March 30 the World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards entirely abandoned plans for rankings for 2020 and pledged instead to focus on efforts to help the hospitality industry face the challenges of the novel coronavirus.

The awards ceremony, scheduled for June 2 in Antwerp, Belgium, will be postponed until next year. The voting on the world’s best restaurant, though already completed, won’t be revealed, even online.
